Our Signature Course



The Getting To The Truth course is fascinating, effective and one of those courses that you can't get enough of. It is a 3-day course packed with cutting edge tools to help investigators solve cases quicker and elevate their interviewer skills.  Right from the beginning, you will see the principles displayed in real case video, audio and written examples. 

This course will cover the language of Deception vs. Veracity as well as language that is expected and unexpected in:

  • Homicide statements
  • Sex assault statements
  • Threat assessment
  • Suicide statements
  • 911 calls
  • Missing person statements
  • Domestic Violence
  • Thefts
  • Addiction and more...

You will find the principles apply to anyone seeking the truth as much as they do to professional investigators.  In other words, they apply to everyone that communicates with other people!  Whether you are talking with a suspect, client, business associate, or employment applicant, the contents of this course will make a remarkable difference.       

The Getting to The Truth course will give you the tools to recognize truth from deception in verbal and written statements, 911 calls, video interviews, news clips, emails and much more.

Our online course contains all the information you would receive if you were sitting in the live class, which is predominantly taught to criminal and other professional investigators.  The current course is a mixture of video filmed during a live event, and video filmed in studio. This course is packed with awesome content that is effective and easy to use.  We have also added some bonus material from the Lori Vallow case!


The class is taught by our lead instructor, Steve Johnson, a 28 year police investigator who used all the techniques on the job.  Steve still uses all the skills taught in this course when consulting with corporate and law enforcement agencies, working on current and cold cases.  He is passionate about the effectiveness of the techniques, which is evident in his teaching style!

If you were sitting in the class, it would take three days.  With the online class, you can go at your own pace, and the class is yours to keep!

This class goes much deeper than detecting deception!  You will be taught how to identify latent content; the information hiding in plain sight that they didn’t intend to reveal.  This class contains the most updated and effective ways of detecting deception and latent content.

This class also dives into the psycho-linguistics; showing you how to recognize the subject's major personality and character traits.

For professional investigators, this class will enhance your interview and interrogation skills and quickly streamline your investigations. 

This course is the foundation for the most successful interview technique; removing the guess work from the interview and recognizing if and how deception is present.

Using the subject’s own words, you will know:

  • What is going on inside their brain
  • Where to focus your interview questions
  • How to exploit their stress and sensitivity... allowing you to obtain more information and more confessions.

If you hire employees or screen applicants for just about any scenario, these skills will give you the upper hand.

The principles and techniques taught in this class will be solidified with video, audio and written examples from real cases.  The course also contains several practical exercises from real cases.  Each practical will build on the previous one, making all the principles blend and gel. 

 This course will give you the tools to Get to The Truth.  You will recognize critical information that you have previously been missing; critical information that was previously hiding in plain sight!

We’re confident you will find this course is the best Statement Profiling course and you will be able to apply the principles immediately! 

 You will be taught the psychological and linguistic principles behind the subject’s chosen words.

  • Know if the language based on experiential memory or fabricated.
  • Know if, and when the subject is psychologically in their own statement, and when they are distancing.
  • Know the difference between Reliable and Un-reliable denials.
  • We'll show you the many ways deception is presented, what it looks like and what it sounds like... and how you may have unknowingly allowed it in the past.  

From the subject’s own words:

  • Recognize where they purposely skipped over information within their language.
  • Recognize the information the subject has unknowingly revealed (latent content).
  • Identify what part of the language is seemingly unnecessary and why it is so important.
  • Recognize how the subject is revealing where to focus your interview questions and where to focus your investigation. 
  • Recognize when their brain is literally leaking critical information, and they don't realize it.
  • Recognize the language of Addiction, Domestic Violence victims, Abuse victims, and much more…!


I’ve been looking around for a while trying to find someone who offered this type of in-depth training before finally finding Truth2Lies.  I already used it to analyze two statements in a shaken baby case that revealed the dad was responsible and how.  I'm looking forward to learning a lot more from you

Det. C. Lemay - Homicide


 I’ve been an investigator with the Office of Inspector General for 10 years, specializing in Fraud related to public assistance such as Food Stamps, Medicaid, Unemployment etc. 

Right after the class I had a very clear "eureka" moment in the field when I was able to apply what you taught me and use it to elicit a confession of fraud which resulted in a prosecutable case for the state… The Truth2Lies training is more beneficial than any other class I have ever taken

- Fraud Investigator S. Reichley – Office of Inspector General


 “This is a great eye opener as to the different ways we overlook the subconscious clues given on roadside interviews.”  - Trooper G. Andersen – Dept. of Public Safety


This was hands down one of the most beneficial classes in my 24 years on the job. The class was nonstop educational and very informative. My only regret is that this wasn’t offered earlier in my career!”  Sgt. S. McCauley - Professional Standards Bureau


A huge advantage to the Truth2Lies training is that once the course is complete, we won’t just leave you on your own with an awesome new skill set.  We will follow up by email with periodic training articles and training videos to assist you and keep you engaged.  We are also available for questions and support whenever you need it.  We also offer the opportunity for additional monthly training and a community of Statement Profilers for those of you that can't get enough of this!

If there was already a class like this one, we wouldn't be offering it.  The skills being taught in the Truth2Lies class are being used to solve current cases as well as cold cases.  Getting To the Truth is hands down one of the most effective classes you will ever take!

Did we mention that you have lifetime access to the course?  Yep, you can review and sharpen your skills anytime you want!  

We are passionate about your success... see you in class!
